(Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Friday a deal between Athens and lenders for further reforms in return for bailout aid was an 'honorable compromise'.

Tsipras, speaking to Greek lawmakers, said he believed relations with creditors had turned a page, and that lenders had accepted austerity for the crisis-hit country should end.
